European Public Administrations Must Be Able to Accept e-Invoices from April 18, 2019
For years, Europe has been committed to a technological leap enabled by e-Procurement. Now, Directive 2014/55 / EU officially comes into force on April 18, 2019, and all European public administrations must be able to accept invoices in electronic format from their suppliers.
Managing your e-Invoicing with Public Administrations of the European Union in compliance with national specifications can pose a challenge for global companies. To simplify this situation, EDICOM has developed a B2B2G global electronic communications platform with e-Invoicing and VAT Compliance capabilities.
Thanks to the definition of open standards, companies can negotiate electronically with any buyer in the European public sector and carry out procurement processes. This way, the possibilities for procurement, and therefore doing business, are greater.
The two syntaxes used by the CEN (European Committee for Standardization) are as follows:
UNO/CEFACT XML billing message as specified in the XML 16B schemas (SCRDM — CII).
UBL messages for invoices and credit notes as defined in the ISO/IEC 19845:2015 standard.
With the aim of promoting interoperability, the European network PEPPOL was devised and developed based on an infrastructure between certified access points and applicable both in the public and private spheres and worldwide.
Accreditation as a PEPPOL Access Point or authorized third party allows EDICOM to link up with the PEPPOL platform, through which private companies and governments in Europe can exchange any kind of e-documents. In addition, Edicom holds SMP (Service Metadata Publisher) certification, allowing it to manage its own identifier infrastructure in the PEPPOL network connected to the SML (Service Metadata Locator).
